USC wide receiver Robert Woods is widely considered to be one of the top wide receiver prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft, but Woods said he isn't thinking ahead to the draft and is instead focused on the Trojan's remaining schedule.

"Right now, I'm focused on this year and trying to make sure this year goes right," Woods said, according to the Los Angeles Times. "We've still got a lot of games to play."

Woods has been tabbed by some as a possible first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, but said he hasn't thought about whether or not he will declare or return to school. If he wants an example of a highly-rated prospect who decided to return for his senior season, Woods has to look no further than his own team. Both Matt Barkley and T.J. McDonald decided against the NFL Draft last season and instead returned to USC.

Woods has 44 receptions for 492 yards this season and set the USC career record for receptions on Saturday against Colorado. He has 220 receptions for 2,576 yards and 30 touchdowns in his career.
